  1. Shut Up, Dude: This Week’s Best And Worst Comments
    Happy Halloween! Is your musician costume ready? Do you need a last-minute idea? If you have a Cubs jersey you can be Sad Jack White. Or you can go as Sia and have your back to everyone all night. Um … Sexy Bon Iver? Zombie Lana Del Rey? You = Mark Kozelek, your friend = [...]






  2. Trent Reznor Discusses NIN’s Failed Sessions With Arcade Fire Producer, Skepticism About Rock Hall Nomination, U2′s Devaluing Music
    Trent Reznor recently sat down with Billboard for a great interview which touched on a wide range of topics, including his Gone Girl score, failed Hesitation Marks recording sessions with Arcade Fire producer Markus Dravs, his Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame nomination, and his new role at apple as chief creative officer for Beats [...]






  3. The 5 Best Songs Of The Week
    If you were expecting to see some spooky songs in this week’s 5 Best, you might be a little disappointed. Yes, it’s Halloween, but nothing here is particularly Halloweeny. This week did bring the return of the holiday-appropriate Marilyn Manson, and he was nominated, but he didn’t make the cut. Da Mafia 6ix, the resurrected [...]






  4. Billy Corgan Responds To Anderson Cooper’s Dumb On-Air Insults
    On Wednesday night’s Anderson Cooper 360, Cooper featured Billy Corgan in his recurring RidicuList segment for appearing on the cover of PAWS Chicago magazine — something that happened more than five months ago, mind you — and went on to ridicule the wrestling-themed furniture commercial Corgan appeared in last year (apparently he didn’t hear about [...]






  5. Watch Another Spooky Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper Teaser
    Panda Bear has put out another teaser for his upcoming new album, Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper. It features the same Grim Reaper as the first teaser, but things get a lot crazier this time: it starts freaking out and rips the stuffed panda bear in half until there’s nothing left, all while the [...]






  6. The 5 Best Videos Of The Week
    Last week in this space, I wondered where the hell all the Halloween-themed videos were. They all finally showed up this week — including a few today, which puts them out of contention for this week’s list. But some of the best videos of the week weren’t dark or spooky at all. They were technicolor [...]






  7. Cass McCombs – “Angel Blood” (Video)
    Cass McCombs released his seventh full-length LP, Big Wheel And Others, last year, but today we get a video for a track from that album, “Angel Blood.” The melancholy song is accompanied by footage gathered on McCombs’ last tour and in the Tenderloin District of San Francisco. It’s humble yet emotionally poignant, just like McCombs’ [...]






  8. Mac McCaughan – “First And Last And Always” (Sisters Of Mercy Cover)
    Arcade Fire celebrated Halloween by releasing a star-studded horror film they made three years ago. That’s their style: Go big or go home. Their label boss, Merge Records founder and Superchunk/Portastatic main man Mac McCaughan unsurprisingly opted for something simpler and more direct, an eerie, shapeless cover of Sisters Of Mercy’s “First And Last And [...]






  9. Morrissey Cancels Another Show
    Well, that didn’t take long. We just heard tell of Morrissey’s successfully completed jaunt through Portugal, Spain, and Italy, but it seems the world’s most ill-tempered (and sometimes just ill) rock star is back to his gig-canceling ways. A post on Morrissey fan site True To You tells us, “The concert at Lyon Le Radiant [...]






  10. Wildflowers Turns 20
    You belong among the wildflowers You belong in a boat out at sea Sail away, kill off the hours You belong somewhere you feel free The opening verse of the title track from Tom Petty’s 1994 mid-career high-water mark Wildflowers at first blush seems like little more than tattoo bait for young patchouli-spritzed women possessed [...]
